The Young Epilepsy Diagnostic Suite is home to Diagnostic EEG , routine and video-telemetry EEG, and OPM-MEG research. We offer inpatient and outpatient EEG diagnostics for children and young people up to the age of 25.
Unlike other clinical settings, one of the key advantages of our diagnostic suite is its location and special aesthetic design providing a calm, friendly and person-centred environment helping young people and their families to settle with ease.
Our unique setting, and friendly team of staff, helps reduce anxieties sometimes associated with more traditional medical centres and thereby increases the likelihood of good data collection.
This page covers the specific services we offer, who we offer services to, and the referral and diagnostic process.
What we offer
We offer EEG and video telemetry diagnostics services to the NHS and other organisations, and accept private referrals.
The diagnostic EEG and video telemetry techniques offer routine to long term EEG monitoring, including in-patient and out-patient video telemetry options. Following appointments, reports are sent directly to the referring consultants within 3 working days.
Specifically, we provide:
- Routine awake EEG
- Routine sleep EEG
- Ambulatory EEG: usually one night
- In-patient video telemetry: one to four nights
- Home video telemetry: one to three night
Young Epilepsy is also home to the first clinical OPM-MEG. OPM-MEG technology will transform epilepsy diagnosis into a much gentler, less intrusive experience, allowing for more accurate data collection, earlier diagnosis and interventions, and better management, treatment and health outcomes. OPM-MEG is currently undergoing clinical trials and will become part of our routine clinical offer in the future. Find out more about OPM-MEG here.
